With Birds of the Adirondacks (by Bessette, Chapman, Greene and Pens) as your guide, the varied forests, waterways, marshes, and elevation changes make the Town of Piercefield an ideal destination for those who enjoy this pastime. Favorite areas include the Piercefield Flow, the Massawepie Mire, Mt. Arab, the Bog River watershed, Horseshoe Lake Wild Forest, and Dead Creek. Birds of the Adirondacks includes a checklist of over 200 species of native and transient birds seen in the Adirondack region. One Piercefield resident has identified 98 species in Piercefield alone, and many more undoubtedly remain undiscovered.
